Sometimes I feel like, well, in the case of me and my art-making, that painting is a little like constructing a sentence. The piece needs a subject…without a subject, well, you don’t really have anything…. That’s because, from my perspective, I work with a subject in mind….but, I’m painting along and suddenly I’ve come to realize that I do not know what the subject is here….it’s just too ambiguous I think. And, there. I’ve said nothing as well.
Yes, it’s complete and I must say that I’ve come to the conclusion that the only part of this painting that the viewer looks at – at least from the comments on Facebook (mostly male)- is this guy’s dick and its size. Well, that was blunt, wasn’t it? It prompted me to rework his scrotum, which, of course, made me more than a little self-conscious – where previously I had no reservations. Geeze. It is done – but now I think his head is too big! ha!
i had this tiny little canvas….and a tiny idea…so I painted it.
Still a work in progress….I will say, however, that what remains is purely rendering…the composition is complete. I suppose part of it will read differently when the heads are fully developed and the light becomes more directional.
I’m struggling with some tedium in the foreground….still a work in progress!
